Re: Bug#293223: [netinst] Failed to detect IDE cdrom with SATA chipset

I also couldn't continue the linux26 install because it didn't find the CD. My solution was:

- Boot from the CD in the Dell DVD player
- When CD detection fails, remove the cd, put it into an external CD drive attached on an USB port.
- Let the installer re-try the CD detection.

That worked. It found the installer CD in my external USB Plextor DVD, and the install continued.

I haven't tried the Dell CD/DVD since, and don't know yet if it works once the system is installed.
